Empty slot next to SSD

So my laptop came with 128 SSD. I didn't realize how little that was lol... So I am considering upgrading it to a bigger drive, but before I do and go through the whole hassle of cloning. There is a connector next to the SSD. It's separated in to 2 one side has 5 dots, the other 7. It does not look like the mSATA SSD. The large side looks too long for the longer slot of this connector. I have googled and looked through the manual and pictures and have found nothing. If it is possible to have two drives and not have to remove the existing one that'd be nice. A friend of mine says cloning drives is a hassle...

Your machine is a CTO machine therefore we don't have its REAL specs but from your description I believe it only has 128GB M.2 SSD.

 

The series supports DUAL storage options, you can add 2.5" HDD/SSD to your machine but you need  Hard drive bracket part #  L20455-001. Your machine does not need connector cable and that is a bonus.

 

Please check, your machine should have a bay for 2.5" HDD/SSD and it should fit a standard 2.5" HDD/SSD with the following connector
